IA will hopefully do nothing about regulating any speech . As long as no CR laws are broken , this is not a physical space where yelling Fire in the movie house is unlawful speech .
This place is a wonder .
If one prefers bubble wrapped speech , it's easy to find .
If one finds certain speech here abhorrent , then get working and expose it .
This is a library . What is left here will be recorded for the future to judge . If your POV is not there , what will be left ?

Micah,
Yes, you are 100% correct. The archive's content will be there for anyone to review and personally judge, but not ... to censor. Once censorship begins, where does it stop?

Looking at the whole of history , usually censorship stops with those who have the most weapons . Free speech is a rare commodity . Most people who have ever lived never had such rights respected . Freedom of speech is a gift to be treasured . I am grateful to those that help us defend this right .
